Mossies in my water feature

Posted: 29/07/2013 at 12:25

A drop of vegetable oil will spread over the surface and suffocate the wrigglers. Judging by the colour of the water, it might be an idea to put fresh water in.

any suggestions for tall trees

Here is the RHS site listing UK nurseries that sell trees. There is bound to be one near you.

I've just had a look at that site, it's only a water jet with a bit more power, so no chemicals!

Hi everyone, still 30C outside here (10.15pm), hardly moved today except to water in the morning. Could have watered the whole garden with the water that's running of me constantly. 35C expected tomorrow, don't know how I will survive!

Material for raised bed

Posted: 26/07/2013 at 21:02

Found this in Google. Should be no problem for a raised bed..

  • Can I use Tanalith® E treated timber around food, water, vegetables or other plants?
  • Treated timber in general should not be used in direct contact with human food or drinking water during storage or preparation. Incidental contact of food with treated timber, such as in play grounds, picnic tables, decks and pools is fine as there is little or no potential for migration of the preservative constituents onto the food. Similarly treated timber is suitable for raised flower or vegetable beds, gardens, landscaping, mushroom trays, grape and tomato stakes, greenhouse uses and similar applications.

    Why won't my tomatoes ripen?
